Re: [Evolution] Keystroke approach to "mark all as read"?

Don't forget "Mark Messages as Read" (under the Folder menu in Evo 2.5,
elsewhere in earlier versions IIRC). I suspect Peter was asking for a
keyboard accelerator for this.

all messages in a folder: use "control+a" + "control+k".
all messages in evolution: set up a "search folder" without any
criterium, e.g. with "sender | is | " (leave the text field at the end
empty) and sources="all local folders". now you have a search folder
containing all your local mails. go to that folder (it's at the bottom
of your folders pane at the left) and use "control+a" + "control+k".

If not, is it
possible for a user to define a set of keystrokes to do that, much as
control-y runs the filters or control-a selects all? If so, how does one
go about setting that up?

having root access, you can change/add accelerator keys of existing menu
items by editing the corresponding xml files.
for the relevant files, have a look at the xml files in your
/usr/share/evolution/2.4/ui/ directory (depends on distro style; e.g.
suse distro uses /opt/gnome/share/evolution/2.4/ui/ instead).
be careful though, as you can easily break things.
